Tosh has announced an enterprise SSD with competitor-beating performance numbers. The MKx001GRZB – Tosh doesn't go in for catchy brand names – is a 2.5-inch form factor and comes with the same 100, 200 and 400GB capacity points as Hitachi GST's Ultrastar SSD announced in November, and has performance heavily skewed to read I/Os …
"MKx001GRZB" - takes anywhere between 5 - 10 seconds to read in a Texan accent. More after one beer.
Mark one grizzly bear?
Any word on pricing for the aforementioned "MKx001GRZB" ?
It's an enterprise, "special" SLC SSD with a SAS/SATA 6Gbps interface. Therefore, the price falls into the "if you have to ask, you can't afford it" category.
120,000 IOS on a 3Gb/s interface, Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm
120,000 * 4K = 480,000K
call that 480MB/s
on a 3Gb/s interface?
Like the idea of 120,000 IOS though, that is 600 disk drives worth of poke!
Looks like the SSD industry is changing focus to enterprise level products. Chasing margin.
OCZ have new products.
HSGT and Intel have new products
Toshiba as the article
What impact is this going to have on STEC?
Is there enough of a market for all the new players?
Great for consumers though?
